  • Waterproof – Plastic packaging is waterproof. This makes it a more durable option than paper or cardboard. The following blog will give you more ideas on custom packaging materials
  • Label – The label communicates key information to customers. “Free Gift” and “Value Pack” let customers know about the promotion. In addition, the red label highlights the keywords and is attention-grabbing.
